The writer brings back to light the well-known fact that vectors of attractive forces of magnets and electrostatic charges are linear and repulsive forces are tangential. The writer asserted that as the consequence of this fact, the attraction between opposite polarities (of magnets and electrostatic charges) and repulsion between same polarities is not equal due to the different geometry of the field, and therefore different density of the field between two (or more) charges (magnets). This asymmetry actually can account for gravitation. That would bring gravitation to the family of electromagnetic forces. The writer also elaborates on the idea of possibility of electromagnetic origin of inertia, brought in by late Prof. William (Bill) Hughes from the University of South Dakota. The consequence here would be an inherence and independence of inertia, in accordance with Newton's views.
